Deja Vu today? "People are tired of seeing America ripped off?"

An interesting video from the past. What do you think? Trump was sure a handsome young man. If he'd run for president then he would have got the hot stuff vote.

Uh...Why Again Are Taxpayers Forking Over $528 Million+ to Planned Parenthood Every Year?

I posted a question the other day about Planned Parenthood. Why, in view of Obamacare, are we giving this highly profitable "non-profit" any money at all? Planned Parenthood claims they serve those who wouldn't be getting health care without their wonderful service.

Well, that's one more lie!

In the interview I posted  earlier today with Abby Johnson, this pithy quote reveals the truth about the need to have Planned Parenthood in order for women to get health care. It just ain't true! Go to 13:10 on the video to hear it yourself:

Today's Gospel Reading Illustrates the Cost of Human Respect

Because her lewd dance delighted him so much, Herod offered Salome anything she wanted even up to half his kingdom. Goaded on by Herodias who hated John and wanted to kill him, Salome asked for the head of John the Baptist on a platter.

"Because of his oath and the guests who were present...[Herod] sent the order to have John beheaded in prison." Matt 14: 9-10

How many times have we done something wrong out of human respect? Do we put man's opinion above God's? Consider, parents, how many times you have (fearing rejection) chosen to support an adult child in sin rather than face the unpleasant task of speaking the truth in love. How many children continue on the path of evil with a dead conscience because those around them, including parents, stroke them in their sin? I would rather die with my children hating me in the hope my witness would help convert them than see them go to hell aided by my ear tickling. 

Surprise! Former Planned Parenthood Director Says Money is Their Object

In an interview with political commentator Steven Crowder, former Planned Parenthood Director Abby Johnson had this to say about the abortion giant's motives. (It's about the money, stupid!):
  • "my director told us that our goal was to create every phone call, every client visit into a revenue generating visit."
  • "the only way we can make money was to sell a woman an abortion. We were given the directive to sell abortions."   
  • The former director explained that the business model is premised so that even the women they provide contraceptives to come back for an abortion–“the big ticket item”–at some point down the road.
  • “We were there as a family planning clinic, [which] provided abortion[s]....But the whole premise behind being a family planning clinic is to get woman on a contraceptive method that will eventually fail them. We know that 54 percent of women having abortions were using contraception at the time they got pregnant.” 
  • “We had an abortion quota.”
Watch the entire interview. And note that Abby says 90% of pregnant women who come through the door choose abortions. Are we surprised? It's all about manipulating the "customer" through fear, guilt, or self-interest.

Question of the Day on Health Care and Planned Parenthood

I'm scratching my head....

Since we have Obamacare, why do we need Planned Parenthood to provide, as they claim, health care for "poor and underserved" women? Isn't Obamacare supposed to be solving all health care problems? So why, exactly, do we need Planned Parenthood?

Maybe Cecile Richards can tell us how President Obama would answer that question since she's been to the White House 39 times since 2009. Check it out. But maybe they were talking about campaign donations and keeping the $528 million+ in taxpayer money flowing into the murder giant's coffers.

And are we surprised that White House is defending Planned Parenthood? Not hardly. After all, Obama wouldn't want his daughters "punished with a baby" if they got pregnant. As if a child born outside wedlock is somehow less worthy of respect than any others.

Note how, in the video below, the reporter identifies the New York Times and others as "supporters" of Planned Parenthood. Yup, the Times ceased being a "news"paper years ago. Every page in that rag advocates for liberalism as do most of the mainstream media outlets, which is why we need real investigative citizen-journalists to tell the stories the liberal hucksters are covering up. I'm sending the Center for Medical Progress a donation. I hope you will too.

One of the Side Benefits of Natural Family Planning

How Knowing Your Fertility Can Catch Diseases Early

I taught Natural Family Planning (NFP) at Providence Hospital in Washington, D.C. for 15 years with my husband. It was a great experience. And what a blessing NFP was for our marriage especially when I had cancer and was on chemo and my cycles went haywire!

Our bodies are integrated. If something is going wrong in one part of the body, it's likely to affect other parts. NFP is a wonderful way to understand the gift of fertility with which we've been blessed. It's especially helpful for couples having infertility problems. I once had a client who came to a follow up class and told me her infertility doctor asked her where she "learned to do that." (i.e., chart her cycles) It eliminated several tests he would have run. Another client had a doctor who was treating her to get rid of the normal discharge associated with ovulation! I think I'd switch doctors.

It's a good idea to take some responsibility for your own health, and NFP can be part of that. It truly is part of the good news for the family.

How the Elites Used Knowledge of Human Behavior to Manipulate the Masses

A friend recommended the documentary, The Century of Self, and I'm finding it fascinating, especially the impact of Freud's nephew, Edward Bernays, an expert at manipulating the masses using psychological techniques that identified their underlying desires. Bernays was diabolically brilliant!

It certainly explains Madison Avenue manipulation and political propaganda. Planned Parenthood is using it right now with their hiring of a "crisis management firm" to control the disaster caused by the release of the videos showing their barbarism.

Another Gruesome Video from One of the Biggest Planned Parenthood Facilities in the Country

And read this article. Planned Parenthood is up to its neck in illegal activity, masked in order to make the most money while pretending the fees are just covering their costs. As for their providing "health care," get real! Anything they offer that's truly health care, like pap smears and STD testing, is a minuscule part of their business easily provided by state health departments. Planned Parenthood is nothing but a giant leech gorging on the taxpayers. Defund and prosecute!

You Think Selling Baby Body Parts is Something New? Think Again!

If you're against abortion, raise your hand!

People have been absolutely shocked and horrified about Planned Parenthood's evil participation in "harvesting" and selling baby body parts.

It's nothing new, folks! Note the date on this article -- 1999. 

The killing and profiting is decades old -- which just goes to show that people need to SEE and HEAR the evil before they will wake up and react to the horror. And that is why General Dwight Eisenhower insisted that the German people go through the concentration camps and SEE what their silence and cooperation helped cause.

Read the article below and resolve NEVER to cooperate with evil by your silence and inaction. My comments are in red.

Can We Get Rid of John Boehner? Please!

I got this email from Ken Cuccinelli today. Wouldn't be wonderful to get rid of that political crybaby wimp John Boehner. I'm embarrassed that the man calls himself a Catholic. His politics have always seemed to be his first priority. If he had to choose between a seat in Congress and a seat in heaven, I'm not sure he'd put Almighty God above the Almighty Republican Congressional caucus. I just called my representative in Congress, Bob Goodlatte. I hope you'll call yours!

My Fellow Virginians,

An amazing thing happened yesterday, although it hasn’t gotten much attention… yet!

Yesterday, North Carolina Congressman Mark Meadows courageously submitted a “Motion to Vacate the Chair.”  The “Chair” in this case is Speaker Boehner.  If successful, Congressman Meadows’ motion would remove Congressman Boehner as Speaker of the House, and allow for a vote on a new Speaker.

Maybe America can actually get a principled leader at the helm of the House?!  What a change that would be!  And what a step forward for America!

What Exactly Is It?

The Motion to Vacate the Chair is a privileged motion.  This means that – if Cong. Meadows forces it forward – it cannot be blocked by the Speaker or his leadership team using procedural tactics or the Rules Committee.  They will have to have a vote of the entire House of Representatives.

What Are We to Make of This? Pope Francis, Who Are You?

Mayoral Conference Features Only Loony Left US Politicos, Hailed by Francis as “Conscience of Humanity”

How I want to believe we have a pope who is truly a man after God's own heart. How difficult the pope makes it for me to believe it. This latest Vatican meeting adds one more confusing (and toxic?) ingredient to the papal soup pot.

What a photo op for these ghouls of the left all of whom favor ripping babies limb from limb and call sodomy "marriage." But for the pope to label these death peddlers the "conscience of humanity!" It sets my head spinning and my heart aching.

Head of Murder Inc., Cecile Richards, Says Center for Medical Progress is Behind Abortion Mill Bombings!

Planned Parenthood almost got these twins.  It would have
been double the money for hearts, livers, arms, legs....
Wow! Planned Parenthood is really losing it. Trying to take the spotlight off their own egregious trafficking in baby body parts, Cecile Richards is making slanderous statements about the undercover reporters exposing Planned Parenthood's illegal and horrifying actions.

In an interview with George Stephanopoulis, Cecile Richards had the gall to claim they make no money from selling baby body parts. She's a liar and her statement that the undercover reporters are responsible for murdering doctors and bombing abortion mills is defamatory and slanderous.

Richards also claims that women depend on Planned Parenthood for their health care. What health care? Their primary business is abortion -- killing babies for money.

Traditional Marriage: An Endangered Species

Somebody emailed me today about an article I wrote several years ago which is on the Les Femmes website. Rereading the article, I realized it is as relevant today, especially with the Synod on the Family coming up, as it was when I wrote it in 2010. And so I post some of it here with a link back to the original:
In the past century the relentless attack on the institution of marriage has made it an endangered species. Individuals like Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood, John Rock and Gregory Pincus, inventors of the pill, feminist leaders like Betty Friedan, gay activists and liberal politicians have all worked diligently to relegate traditional marriage to the ash heap of history. Unfortunately, some ostensibly Catholic laity and even priests and religious have joined them. In light of this, can the institution survive or is it in danger of extinction? Statistics paint a grim picture with more than 43% of first marriages failing.1Failures rise with multiple marriages. And many cohabitating couples never marry at all. It’s not surprising that this should happen in the century which, according to a vision of Pope Leo XIII, God gave Satan free reign to do his worst.2 But statistics never tell the entire story and, for the Christian, anthropology is incomplete without recognizing God’s intervention. He always gives hope.  (Read More...)

The Golden Calf in the U.S. and the Children of Satan: Make Reparation!

Remember what happened to the people of Israel when they made a golden calf? God promised to punish them, and, as their rebellion continued, they ended up wandering in the desert for 40 years until their evil generation died off. A trip that should have taken only a few weeks took 40 years!

How will God punish us for the abominations taking place in the U.S.? When idols to Satan are erected in major cities, one had best look for the judgment. But after all, we have to realize that after decades of human sacrifice to Satan (i.e., abortion and murder of the helpless handicapped and elderly), raising a statue to the evil one is anti-climactic.

But it shows how brazen the devil is becoming. No longer need he hide his evil. The culture celebrates him, rejecting the love and mercy of God and exchanging it for debauchery and slavery to sin. And those who don't necessarily celebrate, shrug their shoulders and talk about "tolerance" and "choice." Silence in the face of blasphemy against God is a serious evil. Mortal sins of omission are common today! Are you among the silent acquiescing, or even applauding, these evils?

Watch the two videos below and then consider what you will do to make reparation to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary so wounded by our evil culture.

"O Almighty and Eternal God, look upon the Face of Thy Son Jesus. We present It to Thee with confidence, to implore Thy pardon. The All-Merciful Advocate opens His mouth to plead our cause; hearken to His cries, behold His tears, O God, and through His infinite merits hearken to Him when He intercedes for us poor miserable sinners. Amen."

Vaccine Industry Will Destroy Any Doctor Voicing Reservations if They Can!

But they failed in this case.

Dr. Jack Wolfson cleared of all charges for exercising his free speech rights on the issue of vaccine risks and the stupidity of blind medical obedience
Like many physicians who tell the truth about vaccine side effects and potential dangers, Dr. Wolfson received death threats and was threatened with violence. This is more common than you might suppose -- the very same industry that routinely commits medical violence against children in the form of toxic vaccine ingredients is also well-known for encouraging and even organizing online threats of violence against physicians who are attempting to help protect children. 

Would You Make a Quadriplegic a Marine? Keep Same-Sex Attracted Men Out of the Seminary!

Michael Voris recently got lambasted by many for calling out a seminary where the men were told to wear bathrobes to avoid being "an occasion of sin" for seminarians who might be "same-sex attracted." He rightly asked why these men are allowed to continue as seminarians. Will their attraction to other seminarians and, perhaps, adolescent boys in the parishes they serve disappear with ordinatin? Hardly! They simply do not belong in the seminary.

I admit that when I read the seminary priest's letter about the "offensive" Vortex I was temporarily hoodwinked by his overwhelming verbiage. But, after reflecting further, I realized Voris was right on! There is no place in the seminary for men who are attracted to other men. It is uncharitable to allow them to continue in an environment of constant temptation and it is unfair to the men with the normal urges of men who would make good husbands and fathers. They actually make a heroic sacrifice, giving up wives and families to dedicate themselves to their bride, Holy Mother Church. The same-sex attracted give up nothing and, instead, find a haven where they can receive all the respect and admiration they crave while they engage in retreats, vacations, and living situations that may very well be significant occasions of sin.

That is not to say that those who are same-sex attracted do not deserve our compassion and consideration. They certainly have struggles like all of us sinners. But they should NEVER be allowed in the seminaries and they should NEVER be ordained. We've seen the price paid by parishes and families when this common-sense rule is ignored. They are not fit for the priesthood any more than a quadriplegic is fit to be a Marine or a fireman. It doesn't mean he isn't a valuable person loved by God and deserving of respect. But he doesn't have what it takes to fulfill the mission!

Terry Nelson at Abbey Roads has a great post on this. Please read it!

Meditation for Sunday: We Don't Belong to Ourselves

Whenever I hear someone talking as if he is the ultimate arbiter of his own existence, I can't help shaking my head. None of us owns himself. No matter how much we want to believe we do, it simply isn't true.

Some things do belong to me. If someone pulls into MY driveway to visit, he comes to MY house (and the mortgage company's). My husband and I own it. We bought it from the former owner who proved he had a clear title to the property and he sold it to us.

An Uncertain Trumpet Sound

By Fr. Tom Collins

Obama's fundamental transformation of America is coming to fruition. Apparently "Hope and Change" can only be realized by ensuring that valuable parts of a living pre-born child are carefully harvested in the process of "terminating a pregnancy". After all, Obama's aides have pointed out that we should never allow a crisis go to waste - especially if it is a crisis pregnancy!

Note that the HHS has determined such "pre-natal care" is one of the key linchpins of "good medical practice"and "social justice". This must apparently be in harmony with Church teaching and discipline. After all, in 2012, did not the President of the USCCB, Cardinal Timothy Dolan, with apparently no opposition from the Vatican, give the closing benediction to the Democratic National Convention, which had just decisively reaffirmed that no pre-born child should have the right to live?
It thus seems that callously butchering living pre-born children and making a few extra dollars by harvesting their organs have become integral dimensions of the ever-evolving re-definition of "social justice" - even among large portions of the Roman Catholic community.

The time will soon come when the measure we measure out to the most helpless of Christ's brethren will be measured out to us, as God finally allows Mother Earth to exercise her "right to choose" in natural disasters beyond comprehension. And remember, Obama and the Democratic Party have decisively asserted that any who have the audacity to survive an abortion should not be given any life-sustaining support - so any relief given to those who survive a natural disaster would be a
violation of Mother Earth's "right to choose". 
May all of us come to sincere repentance and reform before it is too late!
